For last week, J thought we could commit premeditated acts of self-love together. It was fun, and today couldn’t come fast enough, I couldn’t wait to swap stories with everyone.
Below is J’s proposal for each day of the week and how I applied said suggestions.
Monday: Indulge in at least one guilty pleasure.
Sugar overload and junk food… I balanced it out by eating a huge salad for dinner though.
Tuesday: Express yourself. (Have fun with this one.)
This one will be a stand-alone post in the upcoming weeks.
Wednesday: Reward yourself.
Enjoyed a leisurely morning spent in my pajamas, wandering through the pages of “The Confessions of Catherine de Medici”, after having breakfast in bed.
Thursday: Take 15 minutes (or more) and wander (mentally or physically)
A friend of mine took me shopping with her. I rediscovered how much I dislike shopping. The drive there and back was so much fun though, I loved catching up with her and reminiscing. This evening ended up including both mentally and physically wandering.
Friday: Sip something delicious.
Wine – ‘nuff said.
Out of the blue, just because kind of a movie night with a friend. (I can totally add playing with the cats and bunny to the list too)
Sunday: Love someone – fearlessly, consciously, as only you can.
Not just someone, but more than one person. I love them – consciously, for no specific reason, as only I can and (almost) fearlessly even if it gets my heart broken in a million different ways.
Maybe someday I’ll share the whole list, but for now I’ll say the one I had to focus on most yesterday: figuring out how to say goodbye to a very fear friend of mine who is going back to the States after many month of having her in the same city as I am, just a phone call away and seeing her every week. I love her and will miss her so much!
How about you guys? Did you do any (or all) of the above throughout the week?
